These travelers are returning to their homes after participating in the annual music and culture festival ‘Burning Man’, which has been going on for the past nine days.

The annual festival was held after a gap of three years due to the easing of restrictions due to the global pandemic of Covid-19, which was attended by a large number of fans.

Burning Man’s management tweeted on micro-blogging site Twitter that they faced eight-hour delays as a large number of passengers headed to the Black Rock Desert at the same time at the end of the annual festival.

Passengers may have to wait longer, the administration added in a tweet.

According to reports, around 80,000 fans attended the 9-day long festival.
